In a video with Fox Sports Australia, touted C Liz Cambage states that her fight is booked and she’s looking forward to attending the WNBA draft on April 11 in Connecticut.
The league moved the draft to ESPN’s headquarters and Cambage is expected to be one of the top two picks, playing for either the Minnesota Lynx or relocated Tulsa Shock this summer. Cambage did state she’d rather play in Minnesota, which has the No. 1 pick, but both teams have made contact with her agent and mother.
Cambage, 19, and Connecticut star Maya Moore are the leading picks. Moore, a 6-foot versatile wing, was the runaway selection for the No. 1 overall pick because it was uncertain Cambage would enter the draft due to Basketball Australia wanting its developing stars to remain home. But she made the decision to travel and at 6-foot-8 with oodles of potential and personality, Cambage is equally hard to pass on for any pick.
Cambage is currently playing for the the Bullen Boomers for the WNBL title. In other WNBL news, three-time WNBA MVP Lauren Jackson is in negotiations with the Canberra Capitals to wind out her career. The deal gives her flexibility to continue play internationally, including in the WNBA.
